everyone has people that are hero status to them, or that they really admire. Ali was someone I very much admired, maybe because I watched all of his fights on TV and am an old time boxing fan. gaw, you really read my thoughts on this, thank you, and I expressed them in my thread too. My tribute... :box: :box: :box: :box: :box:

I ain’t draft dodging. I ain’t burning no flag. I ain’t running to Canada. I’m staying right here. You want to send me to jail? Fine, you go right ahead. I’ve been in jail for 400 years. I could be there for 4 or 5 more, but I ain’t going no 10,000 miles to help murder and kill other poor people. If I want to die, I’ll die right here, right now, fightin’ you, if I want to die. You my enemy, not no Chinese, no Vietcong, no Japanese. You my opposer when I want freedom. You my opposer when I want justice. You my opposer when I want equality. Want me to go somewhere and fight for you? You won’t even stand up for me right here in America, for my rights and my religious beliefs. You won’t even stand up for my right here at home.

-- Muhammad Ali
( I’ve been in jail for 400 years) rest in peace ALI. that being said,he really was dumb as a box of rocks.blacks in the thirdays,fortys& fifties got a better education even with being separate in schooling than todays blacks.read some Thomas soul,shelby steele,walter Williams. everything is political, I remember the hatred from the left when Reagan died. no hatred here but don't rewrite history,i lived thru it& was paying attention.
